What do you do when you are not at Lifeline?

Melissa loves hiking in the mountains, reading, and beach vacations. She spends most of her weekends at soccer games and swim meets.

Favorite scripture or quote.

My favorite thing about Lifeline is getting to see Ephesians 3:20 manifested in the families we serve- God is able to do abundantly more than anything we ask or imagine!
